If a person is expecting some money out of their work, then it is expected that, they may not release that work for free. If their goal is not to earn money from their work, then I don't understand why do they copyright it? If their intention is to propagate their message, then by releasing the book for free, the message would be reached to many more people. Unfortunately, many people are not releasing their books for free, eventhough publicly they say, money is not the criteria, but, internally, it was a criteria for them.

I hearty congratulate Dr.Daggubati Venkateswara Rao for releasing this book for free in both English and Telugu.

I would like to thank Sarojini Reddy for informing me about release of this book.

Sakshi - Congress

When Sakshi news paper was started, Congress was very happy for getting one news paper exclusively for themselves. They thought they get very good publicity by that news paper. But, now, Congress might have realized the problem. For the last 1 month, there are significant no.of news items in the first page about failures in the government. Almost everyday, it says that, the Government is not doing this thing or that thing. Eventhough the things that government is not doing do not have any significant impact, still, Sakshi is trying to highlight all the negative aspects of the government.

For those, who do not understand why this is happening,

Sakshi is owned by Y.S.Jagan, (S/O, Late C.M. Y.S.Rajasekhara Reddy). When, Dr.Y.S.R was C.M., Sakshi used to give good publicity to the government and to Congress. After the death of Dr.Y.S.R, Jagan wanted to become C.M. But, since he has not been made C.M., he is trying the footsteps of his father to defame the government, so that the government falls, and he can try to become Chief Minister. Dr.Y.S.R has done similar things back in 1990-92. He tried his best to become C.M. between 1990-92. But, Party high command did not agree then. Finally, he got hold in 2004.

Vajpayee - Right Man in a Wrong Party

This is the famous quote that I have been hearing about Vajpayee for a long time. I feel, whoever says that, does not have even basic knowledge about real politics. They know only dirty politics.

The reason why these so called famous journalists give this type of comment was because, BJP is a party for hindus, and Vajpayee is a secular. Before deciding whether a party/person is secular or not, they have to see secularism from all aspects. It is unfortunate that, in India, if anybody supports any religion other than Hinduism, they are called as secular people. The supporters of Hinduism are called as Hindu fanatics or something similar. By the way, this article is not about religion and whether BJP is secular or not.

Shyam Prasad Mukherjee was a freedom fighter. He and Nehru were not aligned in many principles and the way of executing. Shyam Prasad Mukherjee supported Free Market Economics, where as Nehru supported Socialist economics. The way Nehru handled the issue of Jammu & Kashmir was not liked by Shyam Prasad Mukherjee. There were many difference between them, and finally Shyam Prasad Mukherjee started Bhartiya Jana Sangh in 1952, Which later on became Bhartiya Janatha Party (BJP). Even after 57 years, BJP still has the same goals and vision set by Shyam Prasad Mukherjee. The party is lead by the idelogies rather than People. BJP and Left parties are the only parties that are lead by the ideologies, where as all the other parties in India are lead by a person or a family (considering only the parties that had taken power atleast once).

Congress followed only Socialist Economics till 1991. After 1991, P.V.Narasimha Rao and Manmohan Singh changed the policies to Free Market Economics at the center. But, most of the Congress governments at states still follow the socialist economics policy only. On the other hand, BJP has always been following Free Market Economics since the beginning in 1952.

Regarding Jammu & Kashmir issue, Congress and BJP have exactly opposite opinions since the very beginning. There is no change in the opinions of either.

If we take the way the currency was devaluated in both Congress and BJP governments, one can find significant difference. Congress government devaluated rupee, whenever they felt like. But, BJP government devaluated only when there was no other option.

There are significant differences between both the parties in their policies on economics, governance and many others. Religion is just one small thing in their total vision. Unfortunately only that is projected significantly due to may reasons. Vajpayee is completely aligned with the policies of BJP. There is no other party in India which had similar policies. If they take all the policies of all the parties, and match with the policies of Vajpayee, he would be very close match with BJP, and not at all a match for any other party. I cannot understand on what basis, these so called famous people claim that Vajpayee is in wrong party.

Buying Votes in Elections

Generally, in many elections, parties give money to the voters to vote for their party. Those whoever is giving money do not have any of knowing whether that person voted for their party or not. Still, they give money. Most of the voters who take money (atleast the uneducated voters) are sincere in their voting.

If there is a person, and if he gets money from three parties, then he would vote for one of those three parties with his own discretion. All the three parties know this. Still, all of them give money. The reason is, if they give money, then they may get vote or they may not. But, if they don't give money, then they will surely won't get the vote.

Let's suppose that person has a family, and his family consists of 3 voters including him. If all the three parties give equal money to all of them, each party would get one vote each from his family. If the parties give unequal amounts of money, then they get proportionate votes based on the money received by the entire family. If his family consists of 4 voters and the three parties give equal amount of money, then the three parties get minimum one vote each, and the fourth vote goes to one of them depending on other factors. Most of the uneducated voters are sincere in this case.

Recently I came to know of a different way to buy votes. The candidate announced that, he would be giving Rs.5000 per family. The family has to give their ration card to him, and he would note down the no.of voters in their family and gives Rs.5000 to them. If he gets more no.of votes than the no.of voters to whom he gave money, then he would return the ration cards of all the voters. If he does not, then he would tear all the ration cards. Since, no Middle class family or poor family afford to lose ration card, he won eventhough he contested as an independent from a constituency which is in outskirts of a city.
